New Trailhead Venue Coming to Schreiner University

Cool new gathering spot for campus and community

Kerrville, TX – News of a cool, new and welcoming space coming to Kerrville at the –currently under construction -River Trail Trailhead at Schreiner University was released today. An authentic, inviting, rustic –yet modern –venue is being planned where the River Trail will extend inside Schreiner’s campus with an expected grand opening of Apr 17, 2020 –the same date as the Trailhead grand opening and also of Schreiner’s alumni “homecoming weekend” also known as RECALL.

“The venue–whose name has not yet been determined –will be a placefor Schreiner faculty, staff and students to gather, while simultaneously creating space for the Kerrville community to enjoy as well,” said Bill Muse, Vice President for Administration and Finance at Schreiner University. “Serving beer, wine, coffee, tea and sodas, it will be a family friendly and “study” friendly establishment for both the students and the community.”

“We are in the process of developing everything from custom blended coffees to custom crafted beers,” said Jeremy Walther, co-owner of Pint and Plow Brewing Company – who is working with Schreiner University on this endeavor. “The students at Schreiner have been involved from the beginning in planning this. They are instrumental to the look and feel of the new place.”

When the extension of the River Trail was approved, Schreiner agreed to build permanent, public restrooms at the Trailhead, and to make other improvements to the trailhead site. Schreiner University then decided to create the open-to-the-public establishment as a way of enhancing that partnership with the Kerrville community even more.The new establishment will be housed in a redecorated –yet historic –building on the west side of campus, which was formerly the old Faculty Club House.

Two adjacent buildings are being removed, so that the site surrounding the venue can be turned into outdoor dining and recreation spaces. But those other buildings are not being destroyed. They are being relocated to other parts of Kerrville, remodeled, and will become affordable housing. The rock house that was the former home of Texas Music Heritage Foundation will be converted into a history and visitor kiosk for Schreiner and the Kerrville Community.

Along with the new hang out, plans include an outdoor stage for concerts and performances, sand volleyball courts, horseshoes, washer pits and areas for food trucks among other amenities. There will be more information about this exciting new establishment as details are released.For more information about the new Trailhead facility, please contact Bill Muse at bmuse@schreiner.edu, or Jeremy Walther at jeremy@pintandplow.com.
